Hiroko Kubota Embroiders Internet Cats on Shirts

Hiroko Kubota - Embroidery

There is an old Internet proverb that says there are never enough cats. Always more cats. So, it’s no surprise that embroidered shirts by Hiroko Kubota are so popular. They feature our furry friends peeking out of pockets. Not only are they cute and amusing, but the embroidery is very well done.

The project started when Hiroko made clothing for her son, who requested that his clothing be adorned with cats. He has a bit of an obsession with the animal, and had amassed a plethora of images he found online.

After finishing the shirts, Hiroko posted them online. Not surprisingly, they went viral and prompted her to open up an Etsy shop. It’s since sold out.
